This weekend the Robertson Valley hosts the Robertson Wine on the River Festival. From the 15-17 October 2010 more than 40 wine farms participate in the annual festival, showcasing over 300 wines, all taking place on the idyllic banks of the Breede River.

If you plan on going on a adventure to this majestic location from another part of the country, you might want to use a vehicle to get there. Car rental South Africa would be a great place to start looking for the best wheels to get you there.
If you are already in the area and you would like to have the freedom to explore the area you are visiting independently, you might want to look into car hire Cape Town for the perfect set of wheels.

It’s a spring festival not to be missed with live music, picnics, local produce and of course world-class wines.
